I thought you might say that ;-)

Repo on network share should be OK with FSFS, shouldn't it?

Long term I hope to set up Apache so I can access the repo over the
internet, and then the problem will just go away. Short term I have a work
around, so it's not a big problem for me personally.

But there is no mention of how to do this in the docs, and UNC is very
commonly used for network shares. UNC names *ought* to be more of an
accepted standard than drive mapping. It looks like a bit of a hole in the
ra_local interface.
